How do I convert my bachelors degree score (from INDIA) to GPA?
This conversion is usually not necessary for most of the universities in US but if you are planning to apply for universities that do ask for this conversion, try going for an organization called WES which is World Education Services. This is an organization that considers the grades and the number of credits in your marksheet along with the number of backlogs in-order to arrive at the final GPA that is given for a 4 point scale. This organization charges about $205 for course by course evaluation and an additional $30 to duplicate the report to send to each and every university. You can also check out few Canadian University websites such as McGill, Queens, Concordia etc. as well, to see how they consider the Indian GPA to their 4 point scale. Some top universities might set the bar high for GPA in Indian scale than they normally would, depending on the average GPA that the incoming students from each country have for every year.

I am an ECE student but would like to pursue CS for MS what kind of internships do I choose and is it a good decision to switch streams?
There are many students who successfully switch streams while making the jump from Bachelors to Masters course. Actually, it is the ECE students who mostly make the switch to CS during their MS. It’s a perfectly right choice if you feel that CS is what you should chase after rather than continuing with ECE. Now the issue is the university you’re applying you to might ask for your experience in CS thus far. A project, internship or work experience will make things easy for you and seal the deal. So the kind of internships that will be helpful at this point are the ones that provide you the opportunity to learn new concepts and facets of CS. Take up courses in your field/area of interest say Intelligent systems, artificial intelligence etc. Any certificate courses will increase the weightage of your profile for sure.
